A world-class tennis academy
A successful model was created by Emilio Sánchez Vicario and Sergio Casal in 1998. Using tennis and education within the 'Academia' framework as the vehicle for personal development, our student-athletes will continue to be good citizens of the world, long after they leave our care.
The Emilio Sánchez Academy is considered a well-known reference for its unique training system established by coaches with a worldwide reputation and for developing elite players such as Kuznetsova, Murray, Dimitrov, Hantuchova, and Mónaco, among others.
High-performance training and international schools
This High-Performance training method is closely linked to the player's academic development, provided by ES International School, located within the Academy's Sports Campus. The Academy offers great study programs to juniors that include schooling and language programs as well as weekly training camps for kids and adults of all levels.
The Academia Sánchez-Casal, in conjunction with ES International School, offers Naples, Florida-based players who aim to become tennis professionals the possibility of completing an on-campus American educational program. The school program is offered in a traditional classroom format that is fully compatible with a student's sport training without compromising academic quality. The program requires students to complete at least their senior year, or twelfth grade, of the American secondary education system in order to graduate.
